A car analogy.
I’m old enough to remember the days when foreign cars were relatively rare on American roads; most people drove vehicles produced by the big Detroit auto companies. The quality of those products were horrendous. Looking back to my childhood, it seems like my father’s cars were having major breakdowns every few months, necessitating costly repairs. Cars lasted only several years before requiring replacement with another shoddy, shambling half-wreck (and these shoddy replacements were mostly new cars, not used). Everyone else was in a similar situation; a major topic of conversation was what problem your car had today. My own first car was a used American model, of like kind, which died within several years of low-level use, with complete transmission collapse (literally).
Things changed with the Japanese car invasion. Not only were the Japanese products themselves of a much higher quality, but the competition forced the American companies to produce cars that didn’t have a planned obsolescence period of three-to-six months.
Now, the alert reader may question my commitment to economic protectionism after these comments (by the way, I seem to remember the protectionist Buchanan being criticized for driving foreign cars), but that is not the point of this post. However, before moving on to the main topic, I will say this – protectionism should not be about preventing all foreign products from having access to the domestic market. High quality foreign products, which exhibit characteristics not typical of native production, should be welcome, if for no other reason as to spur native economic efficiency through the pressure of competition. No, the reason to be protectionist is to protect the domestic market from “competition” of cheap products made by Colored coolie labor, products of no better quality than the native brands (and often of lower quality), but so cheap that they undercut the native producers and drive them out of business. The only competition there is merely to lower labor costs, not to improve quality, and that undercutting of cost and of a Western standard of living (and hollowing out of the native productive economy) should be targeted by protectionist policies.
And now the main point. I make an analogy between the car situation and “movement” “leadership.” Just like the old days when there was little to no competition and the American automakers produced absolute trash, Der Movement’s affirmative action policy, and its concomitant lack of accountability, leaves us with “leaders” of the most abysmal character and ability.
All that is required of a Der Movement “leader” is to be of an Anglo-Germanic “Nordish” type, to spout fossilized “movement” dogma, and to seamlessly integrate into the good old boys network. Actual accomplishment, judgment, responsibility, and accountability mean nothing. Quality competition is artificially forced out of the marketplace, leaving the “leaders” no incentive whatsoever for quality control and improvement. They can be wrong about almost everything, make one terrible error after another, be exposed as to have done one unpleasant act after another, be shown to be inept and with questionable judgment – and there are no consequences. The absolute worst that can happen is that they will be eclipsed by someone else exactly the same as them, who will behave just as badly, making the same errors over and over again. Fungible incompetence. Different face, same disgrace.
Obviously, competition is required to spur “movement” “leaders” toward quality control. Someone may ask: Why can’t all the parameters for the Nutzi crowd be met and the competition only come from “movement”-approved ethnicities? In theory, that is possible; however, in reality, the number of Whites, of any ethnicity, who are of high quality and interested in racial activism is very low. Most high quality Whites, people of accomplishment and ability, have thrown in their lot with the System and are concerned with their personal interests and status. This is why the “movement’s” affirmative action policy is so pernicious – it artificially constrains an already very limited pool of potential leadership candidates. There is only a handful of such people to start with, and eliminating a significant fraction of these due to affirmative action leaves too few to be sustainable. In the absence of the required sustainable pool of able candidates, we instead get the incompetents, freaks, and grifters. Sure, by making the “movement” more acceptable, weeding out the defectives, you’d create a positive feedback loop moving forward, possibly attracting quality potential leaders of any White ancestral background, including and especially the upper caste ethnicities. But, unfortunately, it seems like you will first need some competent leadership in order to get the virtuous cycle going. So, if competent leadership is the first step, then the whole process is stuck at the present status quo. The logjam must be broken in order to achieve success.
So, if you want the competition required to promote merit, quality, and ability in real leadership for racial activism, you have to open up leadership possibilities for everyone ostensibly part of the ingroup. Ostensibly is the word, because it seems that some types of folks are around only to provide “D’Nations” or to provide some intellectual heft missing in the “leadership.” These lower-caste individuals are not taken seriously and would never actually be considered as potential leaders, never given that chance in any meaningful way.
There’s no reason for anyone to get offended by this analysis; it is what it is. I am just reporting the reality. It is doubtful it will change any time soon; the rank-and-file are too invested in maintaining the status quo. They like it, they support and enable the affirmative action program, so there’s no point trying to do anything about it. Just sit back, watch the Quota Queens ruin all they touch and run the “movement” into the ground, and just shake your head sadly and move on.
Enjoy the endless failure. Imagine what cars in America would be like if the Japanese invasion never took place. Broken down jalopies spending more time in the repair shop than on the road. Back to the 70s! The same for a “movement” where real competition for leadership positions is not allowed.
